    I worked at Box full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fun environment, great technology, competitive salaries.

    Cons

    Clearly senior management cares only about showing a growth number to the street. Very millennial environment where insides sales staff and IT support are scared to have a phone conversation. Company sales strategy is to throw reps at markets that haven't been hitting their number and just hope to win some deals.

    Pros

    Ever since I started at Box I have discovered that the culture is very unique. Individuals are encouraged to take their own personal talents and ideas "to work" and the organisation presents the ideal environment and opportunity to be innovative.

    Pros

    Box knows employees are people too and enables you to balance home and work life with flex hours, remote work, great mental health benefits, lots of community activities and more. The product is also really epic - we are helping companies thrive and survive during the pandemic by enabling secure, remote work. Feels great to know we help companies and orgs from the IRC (International Rescue Committee) to Disney do incredible things.

    Cons

    Meeting heavy culture, but teams working to solve for that and give time back.
